of this unfold. but let's bring in our law enforcement analyst here with us in boston. julia, come on over here. >> all right. >> let's talk first of all about john king's reporting substantial progress in the criminal investigation here in boston, significant development. we don't know what that progress is. but you know what, john is joining us on the phone right now. so let's talk to john. john, go ahead and tell us what you can. >> wolf, i'm on my way to you now. i want to report some breaking news information from two sources. one is a boston law enforcement source who tells me they believe they do have a significant breakthrough in the investigation. this source is calling this substantial progress. that source declined to be more specific but said to anticipate more details later today. now, i want to give you some information -- initial information important from a second source who has been briefed on the investigation. and i am told by sources that both governor deval patrick and mayor mannino and after the boston commissioner after one of the briefings this morning went to talk to th
to the hospital. that is straight off cbs. we ask average american to assist law enforcement in identifying who the bomber was. see something, say some. now we have someone who was being deported due to national security concerns, who was at the scene, he can possibly i.d. everybody, we're asking that in boston, and we had this g there, and he was detailed in the hospital, covered with blood, and that we will deport him. ofif i might, i am unaware anyone who is being deported for national security concerns at all related to boston. i do not know where -- eli >> he is being deported. >> like i said, i do not even think he was technically a person of interest or a suspect. that was a wash, and i am not aware of any proceeding there. i will clarify that, but i think this is an example of why it is so impnt leaw endo its j >> that is why i say we wouldn't you agree that it is negligent for as the administration to deport someone who was at the scene of the bombing, and we are on to deport him, not being able to question him any more? >> i am not going to answer that question. it is so full of the s
on accountable government to enforce the rule of law. there are two problems that grow on government like mold on otherwise probably good bread -- corruption and inefficiency. it is important -- government corruption and inefficiency are what stands today between the american people and the economy and society that they deserve. to combat those pathologies, a new conservativism should center around three principles -- equality, diversity, and sustainability. let me explain. the first and most important of these couples is equality. the only way for the free market and civil society to function is to align the interests of a strong and those of the week, to have everyone play by the same set of rules. define this principle as how our government has always corrected itself. in the past the problem was political discrimination helped the disconnected down. today the specialty is dispensing political privileges to prop the well-connected up. in either case, the corruption is the same, official inequality, twisting the law to make some people more equal than others, making it harder for some to su
friend, and i like him a lot, but if he's asking us to ar understanding of the due process of law that has established us as a unique light among the darkness in this world, then i have to think through that very carefully. yes, i want to be able to question these guys. no, i don't want them to get all lawyered-up. but at the same time we're a country of laws. i do want our country to acknowledge terrorism when it's obvious terrorism. for example, i want us to say, fort hood, that was terrorism. little rock, the shooting of the soldier outside the recruiting office, let's be honest, let's say that's terrorism. the question is, do we suspend the normal due processes of law, whether it's to these guys, or to you or to me, and to designate somebody as an enemy combatant? that's a tougher one. in fact, it's tough enough that probably the smart thing to do is to bring judge andrew napolitano on board. i know he's got his view of senator lindsey graham's comments. i welcome judge napolitano, senior judicial analyst for fox news. judge, do we designate this guy enemy combatant or treat h
quickly walk away from it, what is not normal. that we only have so many law enforcement people. we have a guy in times where the waterway and there may be a normal explanation for it. i get on the metra system and by putting my earphones and a listen to my music or whatever when that is probably not a very smart thing, particularly for a guy like me to do. but it is just being aware -- you know, it is so easy. when i went to vietnam ever went said, stay alert, stay alive. i think people will be a little bit more alert right now, but just look for things that are out of place. is an author.t is ned zsa,ler republican. 'd think throrism comes at all different forms and different faces, not just literally, but metaphorically, too. you cannot say that it is not political or that it is. it is hard to label active terrorism -- acts of terrorism sometimes providing it is up to with identifying terrorism. we sometimes let our guard down and i feel like we do not know when the time is to act. when something should be under suspicion. we wait for something to happen. tough one. is a you are
locomotives. about half a billion dollars to be spent on these new locomotives. in that section of law, one sentence was added that said these must be 100% american made. no one was making locomotives in america before that. but siemens, the german corporation, one of the biggest manufacturers in the world said, oh, half a billion dollar well, can make locomotives in america, sure. in sacramento, california, they opened a manufacturing plant, probably somewhere between 200 and 300 people working there today manufacturing 100% american made locomotives and on may 134, three years after they began this process, the first 100% american made locomotive in probably more than a century rolled onto the tracks of america. we can do this. h.r. 549 will provide that opportunity, using american-taxpayer money. i have another bill that does the same for wind and solar projects. we can do these things and put our mind to it and get past this business of austerity. we cannot solve this problem of american jobs with an austerity budget. we see it failing here in europe and united states as the long-term u
? >> we're told fran townsend has a federal source, i have a boston law enforcement source saying an arrest has been made. that is a dramatic breakthrough. waiting for more information. i was told earlier this morning an operation was under way after they had clearly identified a suspect. the breakthrough came, remember, just last night, we were talking about how much progress they made in the how and exactly when. but they hadn't gotten to the who. i'm told based on a video camera at lord & taylor department store a few blocks from here, based on a video camera from that store fixed on the location from the second bombing, across the street from the second bombing, they got what they were looking for. video analysis showing a male showing up and placing the black bag with the explosive device in it, and because of the video enhancement technology, mostly dprept sto from the department store, they clearly identified a suspect, a single suspect and an arrest has been made. a briefing scheduled for later this evening, obviously. >> so let's reset chronologically. do we know what poi
be held for questioning under the law of war. i'm asking this administration to leave on the table the option if the evidence warrants to designate this i had as an enemy combatcombatant. >> john: meanwhile other critics are wondering if the fbi did not do enough to investigate tamer tamerian. among those are republican new york congressman peter king. >> the fbi has given information as being potential terrorists, they don't look at them and then they carry out murders after this. what went wrong. >> john: but jay carney insisted that the fbi had done its job. >> the fbi followed up on the information that it received about tamerian tsarnaev. they investigated him thoroughly and did not find terrorism domestic or foreign. >> joining us a counter counterterrorism expert welcome back to "viewpoint." >> thanks, good to be here. >> john: happy to have you. one suspect is dead and the other is captured and may be communicating with police. what are the big outstanding questions that still need to be answered at this point. >> the first question you're going to ask are there accomplices
this would issue a statement but that will not happen. they have learned from a federal law enforcement source, at this hour officials are looking for two suspects in the deadly boston marathon terror attack. they are distributing photos of the men to the law enforcement community. however, they are not let releasing the images to the media. one is wearing a backpack and the other appears to have a bag of some kind. earlier today there were multiple reports authorities got this important piece of information from a department store surveillance video near the finish line of the marathon. we go live back to boston, our very own bill hemmer standing by. i understand it, bill, you have seen these photos? >> good evening to you. thanks to my colleague, rick, who you will speak to in a couple minutes on your program here. i have seen the picture and the images, and you can clearly see, you know, the faces of these two persons described in the report rick broke a few hours ago. but with regard to that, sean, you think about theence that wad and was postponed and later cancelled. you think abo
constitution all laws he united states of american against all enemies, foreign and domestic. and we pledged to perform work of national importance under civilian direction when required when i recited this pledge last week, i cannot imagine that work of national importance by civilians would be required here in boston so soon. but now, all of us need to take up this pledge. we all have service to perform and indeed, we are all move by the thousands of people who stepped forward in a moment of tragedy and confusion to serve. i want to salute everyone who ran toward the victims, despite risk to themselves. everyone who gave blood, everyone who volunteered shelter for stranded runners, i want to salute the members of law enforcement who are protecting us as we speak and to thank the people around the world who are sending messages of hope and solidarity. before us, all the civilian work of national and international interest, no one has to take a a formal oath. we know instinctively that we stise to the od act because of our common humanity. that is what makes us erans. one nation under god, a
with our government's top national security priority, which is the lawful effective and humane interrogation of this subject for the purposes of gathering intelligence. the boston attacks were clearly inspired by the violent ideology of transnationallist islamist terrorism. so we need to learn everything we can about what foreign terrorists or terrorist groups the suspect and his brother might have associated with, whether they were part of additional plots to attack our nation, and what other relevant information the suspect may possess that could prevent future attacks against the united states or our interests. i think we need to delve further into this whole issue of the education that some people who are motivated by these base ideologies obtain over the internet and the effect that it's having. we should at least know about that. our civilian justice system offers a responsible option for striking this balance with american citizens. it allows the justice department to delay reading a suspect his miranda rights if doing so is in the interest of -- quote -- "public safety.
are now considering, will tend to improve or enhance your ability to enforce the laws? >> it is real difficult for us to say at this point because we are like everybody else. we are struggling to read through this monster and reference back and forth. you, iuite honest with know there are some improvements in here, but i have not seen a lot of them. i am confused by some of these things with regards to three misdemeanors and the standards, the crimes involving purple to did we have now. it should be a misdemeanor, one within five years. how does that make sense with these three misdemeanors? what are significant misdemeanors? this is not a legal term we are significant -- we are familiar with. it is something we struggle with already. this makes a lot more questions than i think it provides answers. it will take a lot of digging through this. i have seen some things with regard to getting affiliation. we areeral concept, about that. but a finer stand correctly, it says things like if the person says i am no longer a part of the gained comment -- again, they get to have this probation
's the new york times. in the new "new york times, a senior law-enforcement officials said they were looking the connection between pressure cookers, which is how the bombs were used, and al qaeda in the arabian peninsula. some reporting from the papers this morning. getting your reaction, day two of your reaction to the bombings in boston. we begin with charles, an independent caller. aller: i'm just calling about fox reporter in boston going around asking people about the situation that happened and what should they do to the people. and he tried to switch over like it was the president's fault, asking do you think the president has done enough? it is the same stuff with them. these people are grieving a loss and they are trying to say it's the president's fault. i don't understand fox news. are a bunch of haters. we are trying to bring the country together. i just don't get them. they gave busgh a pass, running this country into the ground. it is a shame how they act all the time. --t: on our facebook page facebook.com/c-span. william, republican caller from tennessee. caller: good mornin
to this? >> well, we are -- i think the law enforcement personnel, the investigators are confident that the 19-year-old offender who's in the hospital was involved with the incidents on monday. as to whether or not there may be others involved, as i understand it we don't think there may be others at this point. but the investigators as they should are continuing to look into the matter. and authorities including myself are asking everyone to be vigilant but not fearful. to live our elives but keep our eyes open. if we see or hear of unusual activity to bring it forward. but the investigation continues, the arrest of this offender is a significant step, but we recognize we have a long way to go yet, candy. >> senator, that's the challenge, isn't it? to be not fearful but vigilant. sometimes the two of those are a bit mutually exclusive. how do you figure at future events in boston, take the boston marathon in next year, has this fundamentally changed the way you approach large events in that city or any other city? >> any time you have an event like this, candy, you need to learn f
of appeals heard arguments in a lawsuit challenging california's law banning so- called conversion therapy, a psychotherapy technique aimed at helping gay teens become straight. backers of the law say conversion therapy is danger and that the state has the right to protect patients. but opponents of the law say it violates free speech right. >> it's unprecedented that california would pass a law that would interfere with patients and doctors and tell them not only what they can say on the subject matter but what viewpoint they can express. i think it's a very dangerous law. >> two lower courts ruled against the ban. one found the law unconstitutional but the other upheld the law. >>> there is new information coming out on a possible sabotage planned on the south bay. we'll tell you why officials say someone may have cut a fiberoptic line in order to shoot up a power station. >>> another breezy day. not as windy as yesterday. temperatures a little warmer. winds are dying further and we're going to see warmer day time highs as we get towards thursday. you kids should count yourselves lucky.
refrained from making any effort to apprehend the two men and instead to call law enforcement. with the review of social media post catherine has our report. >> determination it if it was an international domestic act of terrorism with the intelligence chief updated lawmakers on the case but we don't know if it was planned and executed by a terrorist organization foreign or domestic or an individual act. loan-loss and extremist mercer and the determined to attack. >> with key bomb components intact and investigations on going home and security said new leads are expected soon. >> there are tracers in the gunpowder, the pellets, the ball bearings can be traced to the manufacture and the device itself, the explosive device itself is the best evidence that we have. >> in addition to still images and video fox news is told there is the significance of social media footprint providing new these. 30,000 messages were collected within 1 mile radius of the finish line 24 hours before through a 24 hours after. they seemed out of place or coded including about to boston hotels or analyz
immigration laws. two large companies in minnesota, carlson and medtronic, say the current law hurts their ability to recruit and retain top talent. they are part of a coalition, uniting american families act, and a bill will give committed same-sex couples the same immigration opportunities as other couples. i was recently told of another minnesota company, a smaller company, that will likely have to shut down because the owners, a same-sex couple, will not be able to stay in the country. this point i would like it to enter into the record a letter from the 30 companies that comprise this coalition. is that all right, mr. chairman? i would like to enter a letter from 30 companies in support of your bill. >> under those circumstances, it is quite all right, and of course we will be delighted to have it. tonow everybody will want read it before that day is out. thank you. >> ok, thank you. i just want to finish this point. maybe ask mr. holtz-eakin speak to it. do we not miss an opportunity to strengthen our economy by not allowing lbgt citizens to sponsor their partners as residency
failed to pass background checks. five democrats even voted against the new law. all of them from progun states why did the background checks fail. sane people stopped from buying guns. every sane person knows that checks will not keep guns out of the bad people. they will buy weapons illegally. if the president were really serious about protecting malcolm jenkins from gun violence he would federalize gun crimes and attach a criminal justice component to the gun check legislation. here is what mr. obama should do. registering firearms should be in this country. use the gun in the commission of a crime, 10 years. law abiding people with guns are not the problem. so let's give the police a big advantage. if the cops even find unregistered gun by a stop and frisk, something like that. it's a felony. that would take gun criminals off the streets fast obviously drastically cut gun violence. president obama's gun legislation is targeted, pardon the pun at law abiding people. not criminals. and that's the reason. he isn't getting anywhere. some stats to back my opinion up. 2011 the fbi reports
. >> reporter: that's right. a source tells law enforcement source tells susan candiotti that according to the video surveillance, the two suspects stayed at the scene of the crime. they stayed and watched the crowd, they made sure the bombs went off, and then they walked away casually. this is one of the things that may have been of interest to law enforcement when they figured out who in fact they were looking for, is the behavior of these individuals as they walked away from the crowd. the law enforcement source also says that there is another video of one of the suspects leaving his bag at the scene, but that video has not been released, and this source says that's because they feared what might happen to that suspect if anybody were to come in contact with him. i don't personally understand that explanation entirely, but that's the reason that this law enforcement source said, that that video was not released. in any case, the bigger point here is that these two individuals, their behavior was they stuck around, they watched, they wanted to make sure that the bombs went off and the
. no one should approach them. no one should attempt to apprehend them except law enforcement. >> reporter: and here is another look at suspect two. there is a closer image there. the question besides who are these men is where are they now. investigators are urging anyone with information to use their tip line, 1-800-call-fbi. eric rasmussen, ktvu channel 2 news. >>> more details on today's developments. the president anne first lady traveled to boston for a public service and private meetings with bomb victims and their families. his mother tells ktvu aaron is recovering after a successful organization on his leg. today people left flowers, notes and flaks on boylston street in memory of the three people killed on monday. >> everyone has come together as a community. as an entire nation and the world. >> this morning president obama offered words of comfort at an interfaith service. >> as you begin this long journey of recovery, your city is with you. your commonwealth is with you. your country is with you. we will be with you as you learn to stand and walk and yes, run again. of that i
, it is against the law to try them in military commissions. >> does the president believe that there is a system in place to adequately target and deal with lone operators, those who may not be tied to some kind of larger extremist organization? >> you have heard the president and many others address the evolving threats that we have as a nation. as we have taken the fight to al qaeda and have met with significant progress in removing from the battlefield senior members of al qaeda central, we have seen other threats develop and emerge. and john brennan, the president, many others, the attorney general have spoken about those threats. i would not in any way characterize the suspects in this investigation in any way with regards to that question because that is something that is being determined by investigators and prosecutors. but there is no question that the threat remains. qaedaains from al central, even though it's been decimated. it remains from affiliates of al qaeda, as we've talked about -- aqap and the like. and it remains within the context of your question, self- radicalized actors,
following the interview. if this were to become law, how department in sure they're adequately screen for national security threats? permit togulations confer with the state department to verify the veracity of an applicant's claim. to what extent do they use the authority? are other barriers that prevent this between the agency's? encies? improved theeatly information available from the get go in terms of what data bases are a check box. that source from the beginning when we collect this. with respect to the state department, we have very could relations with the state area which is the credible fear. >> you will check whether that is an accurate statement. >> yes. we do not take it as being valued. bille concern is that this truncates the process. i would just ask you to look at that. student visao the fraud. this is something i have been interested in since 9/11 when there was a lot of it in the country. schools goingked at back to 2008, most of in 2011. eight of the 14 schools are in my state where there are very suspicious activities going on. have 10,500 schools approved by dhs

? does it indicate more about the investigation than law enforcement is saying explicitly? what happens next? joining us now is don borelly, a 25 year veteran of the fbi once served as assistant special agent in charge of the terrorism task force and now chief operating officer of a group that is a strategic consultancy. thank you for being here. nice to have you back. >> thank you for having me. >> how important and what does it mean for the fbi to call these two men not persons of interest or people they want to talk to but to call them suspects. that is a term of art, is it not? >> i think so. you're actually right on that. there has to be a high degree of confidence these individuals are involved in the plot to plant the bombs. otherwise you would have seen softer language and i'm sure there was a lot of discussion whether to release these photographs. you're not accusing them, per se, but you've certainly put the public on this worldwide manhunt to find these guys. so there has to be a high degree of confidence before you're going to walk out on that limb. >> we are told the fbi is

suspects either being identified or being in custody is because these photos began circulating among law enforcement and there was confusion about whether or not there had been arrest but about the fact that there have been suspects or persons of interest who have been identified or at least isolated by law enforcement. >> bill: so you have seen the photos, rick, and based on the imknowledges you saw, how clear are the faces on these photos? >> they are pretty clear. there are multiple angles and you can definitely see their faces. and i hope and i believe that law enforcement using those photos can positively identify the men and whether or not they're the men who are actually responsible remains to be seen. >> quickly, rick, we have also learned earlier tod that investigators found more possible parts from the bomb. what's different today than from last night on that? >> well, you know, we know that these crime scene technicians have been on scene on boilston street for days now, collecting evidence, including apparently the lid from a pressure cooker that blew up on to one of the roof
. i want to congratulate and thank all of the law enforcement authorities for the extraordinary job that they have been doing on behalf of our citizens. in the past few days, we have seen the best and the worst of human behavior. it is the best that all of us really want to focus on. like everyone, we are going to keep watching. we will await word from the law enforcement officers before commenting further. it's a huge easure fore and an important moment to welcome one of our most important partners, our close neighbor and our friend, and i want to welcome my friend, the secretary. one of the first calls i made when i became secretary of state was to josé. we share an alma mater together. he was a graduate student, i was an undergraduate. whatever we don't say right today, you can blame it on them. we obviously share much much more than alma mater. both of us are privileged to represent our extraordinary countries. we share a remarkable friendship and very strong partnership that is growing stronger all the time. for generations we have lived side-by-side as families and neighbors,
, a neighbor, who quickly alerted law enforcement. at 8:40 eastern, applause on the scene as we heard moments ago. and moments later, this tweet from the boston police department, "suspect in custody. officers sweeping the area. stand by for further info. "president obama will speak a minute or so from now. the suspect is taken alive, now in the hospital in serious condition. the exact meaning of that unclear. let's go to jessica yellin who is standing by at the white house. jessica? >> reporter: anderson, this is an opportunity for the president to come out here and cheer on boston. thank the police there, honor the victims, and remind the nation that america doesn't stop for terrorism. president obama watched all of this unfold and the capture go down live on television in the white house as the rest of the nation did. as soon as he learned that the capture was happening, he went across the coloinated, over to the oval office and sat there with staff where he got a call from fbi director muller who officially notified him that it was true, the suspect was captured alive. then the president
no answers. law enforcement officials with ties to the investigation reportedly confirming to the associated press earlier in the day that a suspect had been taken into custody, placed under arrest, and was at that time headed to the federal courthouse in boston. the broadcast and cable television networks including this one went to air with the information. the fbi later denied the story and scolded the media for not verifying information through appropriate official channels. then came an evacuation of the courthouse. the building cleared because of an unspecified threats. all of that happening before the fbi postponed the scheduled 5:00 p.m. briefing that had been scheduled to provide official information on the fbi investigation. it was that kind of day for investigators and the media. as the search continues for a man they believe may have direct knowledge of who carry out this despicable act of horrendous terrorism. here is what we do know at this hour. oh lord and taylor department store directly across from the bomb site, the second bomb, turned over surveillance video to the fbi. th
. first responders i can tell you that there are first responders and law enforcement here from all over the place. i have heard police officers and firefighters from all different small towns in z.cities some have never heard of in this area but they're here and are pitching in for help. it's chaos, one challenge is just trying to coordinate and organize everybody who is here to help. there is a lot that needs to be done. >> and take us back to 8:00 tonight. tell us what happened. do we know details about why this happened?. >> right. well, my understanding is that there was a fire that was at this fertilizer company. first responders went to respond to that fire and a little bit later on it rekindled and the blast happened. and what changed from when that fire initially happened to the blast i'm not sure. it's been all about trying to respond put out fires so as far as the cause i'm is that your will come out later. >> i know with any breaking news situation the details are slow and forth coming but we're getting reports of injuries possibly death tolls do you have information you can
only be tried in federal court. he's never eligible for military commissions. a first year law student could convict this person. what i'm worried about is what does he know about future attacks? he's telling us that his brother was the bad guy, he's sort of just along for the ride. they had no international connections. guess what, he's down-playing his involvement. what i am suggesting is that we use the national security legal system where we can interview him without a lawyer to gather intelligence to prevent a future attack, rather than having to negotiate through his lawyer to get any information. jenna: but, if i could, senator, there seems to be a lot of discrepancy about some of the information come being out about this investigation. >> right. jenna: we've all seen it, you know, played out on the news and otherwise. i would like to drill down a little bit into an even change you just had about the boston terror attacks with the s*epbg o secretary of home land security january elt napolitano. we showed an older brother, this tkhaou owe, that is secretary napolitano. we just sh
of the young men. they were of particular interest to law enforcement because of where they were standing. they arrived early and stayed throughout the course of the race. they were carrying backpacks. another had a duffle bag. it just didn't look right. it was the bulges on the backpack. investigators were looking at frame by frame to see what doesn't look right. these two men sort of fit that definition, that description. so absent context they basically had a look at the normal and said there is something abnormal about this. anyway they ultimately ruled them out. investigators have a lot of pictures they're analyzing right now. there are other people that are on the radar. now we've got to find them and they've got to either rule them out or they've got to raise them in terms of priority on the list. they're looking at surveillance. we are told they're looking at surveillance cameras that were along the route up to a week before and two weeks before so they can see who was traveling, who was looking for locations, possibly scouting those locations. this is going to be an intensive inv
but they will finish warmer. >> also, why law enforcement in the city of oakland is coming to an unfortunate end. it's 8:30 on sunday, april 21st. thank you for joining us. i'm ann. >> and i'm phil. we have a lot of news and coverage. security in the wake of the boston bombing. how will it affect bay area events? >> and we have more on the immigration debate when it comes to the affects on silicon valley. we're in boston with the high- level interrogation team standing by to talk with the one man behind and who they believe is behind the bombings. >> and as susan macinnis tells us, the suspect is too injured to speak. >> reporter: law enforcement officers remain staked out this morning at the boston hospital where dzhokhar tsarnaev is being held under heavy guard waiting to charge him. his injuries are serious. including a bullet wound to the neck that investigators say may have been self-inflicted. >> they say it appears from the wound that he might have stuck the gun to his mouth and fired. >> reporter: that may have happened when police found him hiding in a boat friday night. investigators relea
. that got law enforcement zeroing on the two brothers. bill: mike, we're trying to piece this together as best we can but what can you tell us about the reports that the fbi is questioning him today from his hospital bed? >> reporter: all of that goes back to a "usa today" report citing anonymous sources. the sourcing is not as tight as i would like but certainly a significant development. we know he has been sedated. he has a injury to his neck or jaw, a bullet wound to his neck or jaw that prevented him from communicating. 9 report says he was roused back to consciousness and providing things in writing and providing substantive answers to questions. we know from the information he is providing that indicates there is not a larger network and not a second wave of bombings to be feared, bill. bill: mike, thank you. we'll be back with you when there are more headlines from boston. mike leading our coverage there martha. martha: we are hearing the police chatter when police first spotted dzhokhar tsarnaev hiding in that covered boat. massachusetts state police released the stunning infr
. it all goes back to "usa today" report citing anonymous law enforcement source but if the information hashings out it is certainly significant, the fact he is able to communicate with investigators by writing. he can't speak because as you mentioned there is a gunshot wound either to the neck or jaw or both but he is able to write according to this report and the answers providing to questions are described as substantive. what know from the information the answers he is providing indicates there is not a larger network. there is not a second wave planned or a wave people should be fearful of connected to him. again the information, the sourcing on the information just doesn't give me a whole lot of confidence, jenna. jenna: we'll take that interest consideration, mike as you've been on the ground there for the past several days. we see the flowers behind you and tell us where you are and when will the area around the blast site be reopened to the public? >> reporter: this is copley scare and you see another makeshift emmoral. so sadly these at that are common building up behind us. t
have. the mayor is here. the members of our congressional delegations, all of the law enforcement leadership, several people who want to present to you this morning and take your questions. couple points i want to mention at the outset. i told you yesterday that the fbi has taken charge of the investigation, special agent in charge rick deloriere will speak. it is important to clarify two and only two explosive devices were found yesterday. other parcels, all other parcels in the area of the blast have been examined but they are, there were unexploded bombs or devices found. over 150 people were injured yesterday in the blasts, some gravely. our thoughts go out to all of those injured and killed and to their families and friends. i personally want to thank the extraordinary first responders for their, just extraordinary work yesterday. every single one of them, those who were on site and those who got to the site promptly thereafter performed beautifully as have the area hospitals. i've been calling around to the heads of the hospitals personally to thank them as well. it's our ho
sometimes happens there are well-meaning people in law enforcement who may have information that isn't wholly vetted or accurate at the time and a well-meaning journal list runs with something they legitimately think is a good story. >> michael: let's talk about the story itself. what do we know at this time, brian? >> we don't know much. and that's why -- you know, i always find myself talking myself out of being on television, which is fine. we know the type of device. we know the location. we know that there's a lot of video and film that is going to be gone through, and it is really meticulous. i was at the oklahoma city bombing trial, and what struck me was the level of detail that officers went to trying to piece together evidence, and that sometimes appears to give you a false positive and oftentimes the media genuinely well intended will run with something when it is a red herring or incomplete. >> michael: let's talk about some of that then. they reportedly have video that they think shows the suspect, but they don't know who he is. how can investigato
, that recovery could take awhile. so we do know that federal law enforcement has been in there since last night and that they have been thinking about what kinds of charges they want to bring against him. it seems clear there will be federal charges and those will include terrorism. now we don't know exactly what's going on in there. we don't know anything beyond that he's in serious condition. we don't know any other medical or surgical details. jake? >> how intense is the security there? how does a hospital handle security for someone like this? >> it's very intense. there's a big police presence behind me. they are not even letting us go into the lobby to use the bathrooms or anything, which is unusual having done tons of stories like this. they usually let the media go in and out and get a cup of coffee. they reason even allowing that here. i was speaking with a doctor who frequently worked on inmates and suspects in another city. he said under these circumstances it was pretty likely that the suspect would be handcuffed to the bed and have two guards, one on each side of the bed, in additi
times writing about what he called immigration fear. country and stronger role of law, passed copperheads of reform. -- past comprehensive reform. then there is this summary from the new york times editorial. there is a better way to be safer. pass an immigration bill if terrorists, drug traffickers, and gang bangers with sharp meters in the immigrant haystack, then shrink the haystack. get 11 million people on the books, find out who they are. the issueur calls on of boy scouts of america we welcome jim to the conversation from oklahoma. good morning. the gay crowd wants to push how they live on uni. they should be able to decide their own rules and the government should be completely out of it. just like the gay marriage thing. if they want to get married, fine. if a certain church doesn't want to marry them, then so be it. the government should stay out of the whole issue. that's it. host: part of the debate this week on what to do with the alleged bomber involved in the killing of three bostonians over this past week. the headline, republicans want the boston bombing suspe
are pursuing avenues of product of the element today that are not restricted by existing law, but we are also seeking additional flexibility in other promising areas. the postal service provides a delivery platform for the $800 billion mailing industry that employs 8 million people. it is a big industry, and the way to keep that platform strong is to innovate in ways that improve the experience of delivery and the experience that people have with their mail. having the flexibility to create new products and pursue business opportunities is an important way to keep postal service and the milling industry in total healthy. and i hope everyone is as optimistic as i am that we can get the flexibility through law to make this happen. as i look out to the future, there is an lot to build on. marketing mail or direct mail it is rebounding nicely. we went through a rough spot there with the recession, and despite all the ways that people change in terms of communicating and selling products, marketing mail continues to garner roughly 12% of the total spent in marketing in this united states. it has b
law enforcement find them. >> though it may be difficult, the nation is counting on those with information to come forward and provide it to us. >> reporter: the big break in the case came just hours after president obama delivered a rousing speech to the bombing victims and to the city of boston itself at a service. [ applause ] >> reporter: president obama came to boston with an inspirational message for the victims of the marathon bombings including those who lost limbs in the attack. >> we will all be with you as you learn to stand and walk and, yes, run again. of that i have no doubt, you will run again. [ applause ] >> reporter: the first lady and former massachusetts governor mitt romney were among the dignitaries who joined the president at the historic cathedral of the holy cross. the president said the deadly attack did not intimidate the city of boston. >> it should be pretty clear by now that they picked the wrong city to do it. not here in boston. >> reporter: the president also visited with marathon volunteers and thanked them for helping victims at the bombi
are rampant at all of this times. i actually always find it best to just let the law enforcement officials do their job first. they did not need have rumors or innuendoes thrown around by public officials like me. that does not help the situation. host: what are you doing today? what will guest: your agenda my dad will be tried to stay on top of this as best as possible so they can pass information to others. today's the second most important day for those law enforcement people to do their investigation. they have to get this done as quickly as possible as evidence is available. god forbid if anyone is responsible and thinking about doing this again, before they strike again. host: is that a possibility? guest: you never know. those of the kind of things i like to stay away from. something you can do something like this is certainly an evil and crazy person. you never know what is on the mind of people. they almost always turn out to be, by any normal in definition of the term, insane. you cannot understand what would drive someone to kill innocent people. violence is a part of life, people
to bring in james cavanaugh, nbc news law enforcement analyst and former atf special agent in charge. and with us -- he's with us from nashville. here with me in the studio, robert mcfadden is a former senior ncis official and senior vice president at the suffan group. james, i have to ask you, we've seen so much wild speculation recently. we've seen photos on the cover of the "new york post" that we're not going to show because they turned out to be wrong. how much of that actually ends up harming an investigation by creating sort of false starts? >> well, it is complicated to an investigation, and the commanders, you know, have to wrestle with that in a big media case like this. the even steady reporting is good because it kind of keeps it on the level, just like you saw pete do, it's very pragmatic. so it's difficult to deal with it when you're running a big case like this. for example, the d.c. sniper. we had a lot of issues like that as well. you know, the frenzy to get the story first out. you know, it's not really a necessary -- it's better to get it accurate. this case is mov
with this legislation. we are a safer country when law- enforcement knows who is here, has their fingerprints, photos, conduct background checks, and no wonder these to look at needles through haystacks. both the refugee program and asylum program have been significantly strengthened in the past five years, such that we are much more careful about screening people in determining who should or should not be coming into the country. if there are any changes that our homeland security experts tell us we need to be made -- s, security experts tell us need to be made -- a there were widespread erroneous reports of arrests being made. this emphasizes how important it is to let the facts come out before jumping to any conclusions. mostieve this is the balanced piece of immigration legislation that has been ever produced. the american people and all of our colleagues should read this bill over the next few weeks. they will have ample time to look at every page and every paragraph before we go to markup in the committee. what they will find is a bill the secures our borders, combats the overstay, cracks down
grateful for that. we o'a tremendous debt of gratitude to all of our law enforcement professionals. these men and women get up every day and they show up every day they are going don't always know what to expect. our thoughts thare wi the victims and we pray if you are eir recovwe send our prayers e collier family. police rn to be a officer. he was just 26 years old. his family said he died bravely and he committed his life to serving and protecting others. obviously, on the there is many other answered questions. among them, why did young men who grew up and studied here as part of our communities and country resort to such violence. how did they plan an carry out these attacks and did they receive any help? the families of those killed so senselessly deserve answers. the wounded, some of whom have to learn how to stand, walk, and live again, deserve answers. so i've instructed the f.b.i. and our intelligence community to continue to deploy all of the necessary resources to support the investigation, to collect intelligence, and to protect our citizens. we will determine what ha
